1960 Carver runabout

Enjoy the water a little more with this 1960 Carver runabout. It was completely restored from the ground up in 2005.  The boat was taken apart and restored using all the original pieces for pattern. Some of the original wood was restored and the rest of the original pieces were used to pattern new pieces of mahogany.  It’s powered by an 80-horse 1970 Mercury outboard that’s only had six hours on it since it was rebuilt. The wood steering wheel came off a 1932 Chris Craft, but don’t be fooled, this isn’t a Chris Craft. Still. this 1960 Carver runabout is a nice boat and it’s practically brand new. It’s located in Portland, Oregon, and it’s listed on eBay with a starting bid of $7,000.
